QUADS most recent production

Hello from Sharon, QUADS secretary,

Well, I said that I would be contacting you again to tell you about our up and coming production, and here I am!

Our first night is on the 11th May and we continue every night until Saturday 14th May. The play starts at 7:45 but doors will be open at 7:15pm. Ticket prices are £7 for Thursday and Friday evening and £8.50 for Wednesday and Saturday, which are our 'cafe style' nights.

The play, by Matthew Barber, is called Enchanted April and it is about two proper London housewives who decide to rent a villa in Italy for a holiday away from their bleak marriages; they recruit two other, very different, English women to share the cost and experience. During their enchanted month in the Ligurian villa, the ladies fall under the spell of their idyllic, sun drenched surroundings. There, amid the wisteria blossoms, they rediscover laughter, learn new truths about themselves and find just the romance they need, though perhaps not the romance we - or they- expect to find!

It is a lovely play which, in turns, is sad, insightful, hopeful, and very funny.

I hope that you will come along and enjoy the play. You will travel from the stifling and confined environment of post World War 1 London to a carefree life in a sun drenched, wisteria clad Italian villa. If you join us on a Wednesday or Saturday, you will enjoy all of this whilst nibbling on delicious, Italian 'light bites' and sipping bubbly.

We really hope that you will come and help us to make this another successful QUADS production. You may purchase tickets from Marilyn on: 01332 840518, or if you prefer (and it's easier) then just email me, sharon.hawkins88@yahoo.co.uk

Kind regards

QUADS Secretary
